You get the Carrasell reference?
do you get the SpectraL reference, oh great stylometrics guru?
Reason is I would like to correct Specs on his prnt-scrn "screen theif" he was arguing with Parker.
RIPTERM? remember it? it wasn't popular but was a lot more colorful than ANCII or ANSI was (which ever the two worked with Winblows v 1 to 3 DOS)
RIPTERM had its own copy button. fucking morons. we were trying to find the free painter to make RIP screens for a better BBS but it wasnt working well for WWIV boards. but I believe Jeff had altered Wildcat or some shit. I forgot what he was using with his dialup server software ap.
" Vector Victor" haha Toiletduk. vector graphics.
brings back shit. could of should of would of if I knew I was going to be cast out as "Flamewar" and "King of Trolls" by some kid who was still in middle school if that when I started (ZOK)
with his second hand narratives. Oh Greenspam is the King of Trolls? but not Trippy or that punk I was going to tear a new asshole AKA Digital Avatar?
Piece of shit accused me. he was baiting me. he just didn't think they would bounce both of us. the first to be bounced and sadly, Greenspam got bounced (or the password got taken from me) on totse.com version 2 years or so after getting bounced off of &totse
Also I suspected JC Stanton Darth Beaver. AKA Parker?
Jesus, Jeff actually pulled the plug?
Well that was unexpected, where/how did you hear about that? Comradeash 04:18, 19 December 2005 (UTC)
I hope this is a joke or a hoax; There's not much information availible on it. If totse is actually shut down, the best part of the internet is gone. --Staples
Yes. he sent an e-mail out to the moderators to confirm this. I also noticed interstingly, that the domain was created on the 17th of December 1997, exaclty 8 years earlier, to the day. --SirRoss 19:08, 18 December 2005
I call BS, having earlier talked to a moderator whom recieved no such notice. I have also just talked to a company who leases ad space on totse; they have said that no moderators have been contacted and it is (most likely) down for maintenance. If Jeff had done that I'd drive across the country to bitch-slap him ;). Looking forward to seeing it up again. --Staples
OK sorry for any confusion on the matter, still interesting about the date it went down though. --SirRoss 22:27, 18 December 2005
According to Metaphysicist, and i quote, "The BIOS on the sever crashed, taking te server with it....They need to get new hardware" --Weebl 22:17, Dec 18 2005
Wow That's great I almost cried when I first heard that it was down for good.. Long live Totse!!
I call bullshit. Why would totse go down without warning?
Yep, I think Totse's gone, it's sad, but I think it's the truth.
OMFG, just a thought, do you think it could be down due to revamping Totse (ie, changing the forum software).
HAH!! TOTSE WILL NEVER DIE!!!!!!!!!!!!1111
I was expecting a shutdown :(. Damnit.
"The motherboard on the main server for totse.com fried and died. The server is about 5 years old and we will probably end up replacing the entire server with something that can handle the current traffic load a little better. We have day-old backups of the entire system so we should be able to make a full recovery as soon as new hardware is in place. Please be patient, we are working to get this fixed as quickly as possible."
That is great I almost cried when i first heard it was down for good.. long live Totse!!
Am I the only motherfucker who hoped for a perminant shutdown?
Probably, yes. Most people don't hold grudges against a repository of text files. --Maru (talk) Contribs 17:07, 19 December 2005 (UTC)
It's nothing to do with the textfiles, I just think 99% of the users are complete idiots.
I think many users are 14-year-old 'anarchists' who don't deserve anything but a bullet to the head.. They register at the site for all the wrong reasons and contribute nothing but ignorance and stupidity. There was a topic a while back that read 'I think users should have to take an IQ test to register on totse'. Frankly, I think a policy like this would make totse better for those of us who are actually intelligent human beings with half-decent grammar. --Staples
That would require Jeff to actually give a shit about what happens on his board. He never has, and he never will. That's why TOTSE went to shit back when it was a dial-up board -- Jeff just didn't give a damn what happened on his board. It was just a place for him to hang out 'whenever', and he expected it to magically run itself. That only worked when there was a community of users who wanted to be there, and who were capable of shouting down idiots when they showed up. Once TOTSE got 4 nodes, then 8, and then NirvanaNet moved beyond the SF Bay Area and became a nation-wide network, the number of clueless fucks multiplied out of control. The signal-to-noise ratio became unacceptable, and the good folk left, which made the SNR worse, accelerating their departure. The classic flood/flamewar by Greenspam in its last few weeks exemplify everything that's wrong with that attitude. Ultimately, TOTSE will probably collapse again after Jeff realizes it will never be 'cool', most people have never heard of it (or him), it's not making any appreciable amount of money, and it's more trouble than it's worth. Until then, enjoy the downward spiral.-- Digital Avatar 05:28, 20 December 2005 (UTC)
Come now, its always fun to pwn the n00bs, although the cyclic thread titles in spurious is fucking annoying...remember that thread in S&A where the guy blew nasty diahorrea on his girlfriend? Comradeash 09:58, 20 December 2005 (UTC)
If Jeff didn't 'give a shit', why has he continually operated TOTSE for over 15 years? It takes effort and money, son. Thanks for the brief history of TOTSE's operation, but that doesn't really do anything but take up space. You can read all that in the FAQ section of TOTSE. It isn't that hard to add a little coding onto the registration process. I'm not limiting suggestions of how to lower idiocy to an IQ test on the registration form. There are dozens if not hundreds of ways to manage this. A big problem is that, wherever you go on the web, there will be noobs. I dare you to defy me. I also find it odd that you take such a strong offensive to TOTSE. Albeit you seem to be an intelligent person (Judging by your language skills) you seem to display characteristics similar to those of a sociopath or an individual suffering from aspergers syndrome. This or you hold something against an internet forum. Were you banned from TOTSE or made fun of and are distraught? You don't like the ideals TOTSE stands for? If so, get over it. A pessimist like you should be used to being low. Get used to the world stepping over you :). Take it easy, -TNS
Comeradeash, Yes I do, a classic.. Remember 'Need help with shit covered ass'? --Staples
